Tours and Services

The Royal Melbourne Zoological Gardens is the oldest zoo in Australia. The Zoo organizes the animals according to its natural habitat including the African Rainforest for gorillas, parrots, and hippos, the Australian Bush for kangaroos, wombats, koalas, and emus, and the Asian Rainforest for otters and tigers.

The Royal Melbourne Zoological Gardens offer free guided tours of the grounds to offer information and answer questions. They also offer mobile tours for handicapped and elderly visitors. The Lakeside Bistro and Zoo Gift Shop are nice diversions to break up the day. And, the Carousel is a favorite among children.

The Slumber Safari allows you to sleep overnight with the animals. You’ll stay in huge canvas safari tents, feast on African barbecue, and get up close encounters with the animals. It’s an award winning tourist event and is as close to a safari experience as you can get in Melbourne.

Guests of the Roar n’ Snore at the Royal Melbourne Zoological Gardens gets to have dinner and sleep in the Historic Elephant Exhibit. After dinner you can explore the Zoo after dark with a guide. You get to sleep in safari tents, but you’ll need to bring your own sleeping bag.

The Elizabeth Tower Hotel is situated just north of Melbourne close to the Royal Melbourne Zoological Gardens for easy access on your holiday. It’s also within walking distance of the famous Queen Victoria Market and State Museum. Guest services are helpful and the tram stops right at the front door.

If you’re planning on visiting Melbourne, don’t miss the Royal Melbourne Zoological Gardens. It’s a pleasant stroll through different worlds to watch over 300 species of animals play, eat, and sleep as they do in the wild. With all the guided tours and special overnight stays available you can really get face to face with the animals of the Zoo.
